Today's edition of the website 'Atlas Obscura' has a story about sea-going pets. It featured one 'Sinbad', a dog on board the USCG ship 'Campbell', torpedoed during convoy-protection duties in the Battle of the Atlantic. Sinbad was awarded six medals during his wartime service, anbd considerable press publicity. Could this gave suggested a name for a certain small abandoned kitten? Or was it just the well-known sailor from the "Arabian Nights, whose name was given to both dog and kitten?
